Here is a list of some additional publications you can submit to. Before you submit, remember to read the guidelines carefully, and make sure that your work is the right fit for the publication. If you have any publications that you would like me to add to the list, please send me an email with the link to their site, and I will see if they are appropriate for the list. Just click on the name of the publication to go to the submission guidelines page of their website. The best part is, all of these publications are known for accepting new and unpublished authors!
AGNI publishes poetry, short fiction, and essays. Their print issue is published twice a year, but their online site is added to biweekly.
Every Wednesday, this blog publishes guest posts from a variety of writers and artists in order to help them promote their own blogs and work. They offer a very small per word payment (1 cent per word), but the real goal in submitting to this blog is to gain readership.
Bateau Press allows for a wide range of submissions including poetry, flash fiction, playlets, flash nonfiction, comics/graphic stories, and b/w illustrations. Their submission process is super simple and it’s completely free.
Brittle Star accepts submissions of literary short fiction (up to 2000 words) and poetry (1-4 poems at a time). They publish twice a year.
Boulevard Magazine accepts fiction, poetry, and non-fiction. Although online submissions have a $3 fee, submitting by post is free.
This online magazine publishes five short stories on the fifth of each month. They accept flash fiction, general fiction, horror, science fiction, and fantasy. This issue is becoming more and more competitive each issue but is still relatively new.
Litro Magazine accepts short fiction, flash fiction, and nonfiction based on designated monthly themes. They also have a blog that accepts a series of different non-themed submissions.
This online magazine accepts prose and poetry submissions. This is a very new magazine that actually hasn’t published an issue yet, so get your submissions in while they are young! Young magazines foster less experienced writers.
The Matador Review accepts fiction, flash fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and visual art. They release their online issues quarterly and accept submissions year round.
Meat for Tea accepts poetry, prose, short fiction, essays, flash and microfiction. It charges $5 for downloads of the magazine.
Neon tends to publish darker pieces with elements of the surreal or speculative, but they are open to reading submissions of all types. All genre’s and forms are welcome to submit.
SixPenny publishes three established authors and three emerging authors every issue. They accept any genre of literary fiction and provide automatic illustrations for all of the selected stories.
The Wrong Quarterly accepts both fiction and non-fiction submissions. This publication is sold in bookshops across the UK, US, and France.
Thrice Fiction prides itself in reading everything they receive without charging any fees. They caution that poetry has very little chance of publication, however, they do read it, and as far as genre goes, they are seeking genre-bending pieces.
I also urge you to look at local newspapers and small publications. These are great places to start when you are trying to get published for the first time.
